Anyone interested in an Appalachian Group?

If anyone here is interested in an Appalachian group please post. The group would focus on issues such as economics/poverty, mining & the environment, labor, democratic activism. And of course, subjects such as Appalachian music, writing, history, etc.

1. I was born and bred in the Appalachia's

 

however, I now live in Arizona. I would still be interested in discussing subjects related to my birthplace and where I spent at least half of my life.

So please count me in.

2. I would be interested

I no longer live in Appalachia, but grew up in the eastern part of Kentucky (Paintsville). I have lived in Lexington basically since I came to go to college.

4. Yes

I also grew up in one of Kentucky's Appalachian counties (on the edge of the region - not one in the heart of the coalfields). I live in central Kentucky now but I'm still interested in Appalachia.

7. Yes, please.

Born in NE Georgia, so not exactly the heart of the Appalachians, but the whole region has always been of interest.

29. the music is part of my world..

 

I'm a fiddler/mandolin player -- fb is where I post/engage in artists.. but love to spread the love here too!

Of course I'm also politically active (duh) and very concerned about the environmental issues of the region as I am here and the rest of the planet....

but it's the music that nourishes my soul....
